A Caledonia man was charged with drug charges after police went to talk to him about turning off the smoke alarm in his non-smoking apartment at 8:21 a.m. Tuesday at 3313 Packer Dr.

Bradley Ammon, 28, of Caledonia, was charged with obstruction, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. All of the charges had a repeater enhancer because Ammon had prior drug-related charges.

If convicted of all charges, Ammon faces up to 15 years 10 months in prison and fines up to $30,500.

According to the report, Caledonia Police responded with the Caledonia Fire Department for a report of a fire alarm. The manager told police that someone had been smoking in the apartment, which was a non-smoking apartment and they had turned off the fire alarm.

The officer went to Ammon’s apartment to warn him about turning the smoke alarm off and the officer discovered that he had a contempt of court warrant out for his arrest by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

Ammon wanted to get his wallet, which was in the bathroom, and began walking toward the hallway. The officer told Ammon that he could not go into the bathroom and told Ammon that he would get it. However, Ammon continued toward the hallway, but was ordered to stop. So the officer secured Ammon, but he resisted and tried to pull away.

Another officer reported that Ammon “lunged toward the bedroom bathroom area” to pass the officer.

When the officer went to get Ammon’s wallet, he found heroin, marijuana and an aluminum foil pipe.

He is being held at the Racine County Jail on $1,500 cash bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for 8:30 a.m. May 1 in Racine County Felony Court.
